Do I Want to be in Portsmouth?

Jump to last reply

That sounds pretty silly, I realize; I should know what I want, right?

This is the background: Nine of us will be traveling back to Pennsylvania from Prince Edward Island over a July Saturday/Sunday. Six will be going to Philadelphia and three to western PA (Altoona area.)

So, what I'm looking for is a good stopping point more than halfway home, lodgings that might include a family suite (family with three kids), and a bit of space to walk and explore after being in the car all day.

Portsmouth seemed like a reasonable choice in terms of mileage and breaking off for the western contingent, but I'd love to hear any other suggestions/ideas/reasons Portsmouth isn't the best choice.

(By the way, stopping twice on the way back isn't practicable for most of us, as much as we'd like to.)
